Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher was criticised by United fans on Twitter for his comment on Rashford’s future a week ago.

It should be recalled that former Liverpool player advised the young striker to join Everton in January if he wants to reach his full potentials in no time.

Carragher made this comment on the 11th of September after Rashford scored the only goal that helped England to a 1-0 win over Switzerland during the last international break.

Carragher’s comment wasn’t only met with anger from United fans, it also invokes Mourinho’s wrath as the Portuguese angrily reeled out some statistics to show that he uses the 20-year-old more than any other England youngsters in the Premier League since he became the Red Devils man manager in 2016.

Having seen how angrily everyone were as a result of his advice to Rashford, Carragher has reportedly gone back on what he said.

According to the former Anfield player, Marcus Rashford would need to leave Old Trafford if he wants to play regularly as a centre-forward.

He said as long as Romelu Lukaku remains fit, Mourinho won’t consider using the youngster as a top 9 throughout the season.

He told Sky Sports yesterday that what meant was that the youngster should remain at Old Trafford as long as he’s happy operating from the left flank of attack.

Meanwhile, Rashford will be hoping to start against Swiss Champions Young Boys on Wednesday in their Champions League opener.
